I love the Mets and believe the owners are not responsible stewards of the team. Their poor decisions have placed the team into a position where they no longer invest in a manner of placing the team in contention for the playoffs. They manage the team simply to keep it as a family heirloom. This project is simple, I would like us to create a message and place it on the billboard. Something like:
#FreeMetsFans Sell The Team!
#FreeMetsFans New Owners Needed!
Two billboards on Roosevelt avenue are currently placed on hold to see if we can raise the funds over the next 30 days. The launch date for them is tentatively scheduled for 03/30/2015 (MLB opening day) and would remain in place for four weeks. Once funding is raised, I would like all of the contributors to recommend a message and we can vote on the best ones along with voting of how the design will look.
The money needed is $5000. Renting the two billboards will cost $4000 for 4 weeks. There is a $450 charge to print and install the images onto the boards. The rest of the money will go to cover the Kickstarter commission and production of thank you gifts to the contributors.
The main goal for my project is for us to come together with a collective voice and be able to represent our frustration. It's also about having fun and not being hateful. It's just a game, BUT I really want the Mets to be better at it with long term continued success.
Risks and challenges
This is a all or nothing project. We have 30 days to raise $5000. If this is not achieved the money goes back to you. One goal, two billboards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
